Visitors will also be encouraged and assisted in campaigning online. They will find a search option to locate and communicate with an elected official or media contact, information on steps to becoming an online activist, and additional resources to contact to further pursue personal interests.Network for Good is also designed to help charities become more accountable and help donors make more informed giving decisions by providing critical information about each charity, such as descriptions of programmes, financial information, ratios of administrative costs to programmes and boards of directors. Steve Case, Chairman of AOL Time Warner, said: “Network for Good represents an unprecedented alliance of industry and nonprofit leaders. By combining the passion, expertise and grass-roots affiliations of our nonprofit partners and the reach, resources and Internet capabilities of our corporate founders, we will be able to make giving, volunteering and speaking out on issues as central a part of the Internet as shopping or getting e-mail.”last_img read more
